Thank you for. I show up for my job interview, knowing that I already have it. Some people say my confidence is my weakness, but I've found it takes me pretty far. I always feel like I have a secret weapon when I walk into a new situation. The receptionist at the front desk points me in the direction of the interview and I stop along the way at the bathroom just to make sure my tie is straight and my suit isn't wrinkled from the drive over. I smile at the mirror. Looking good.
My Paraplegic Boss
My advantage is that I'm pretty much immune to a pretty face. The women just don't distract me. Showing of 1 reviews. Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews.

Shausall: [PEbook] Ebook My Paraplegic Boss, by Evelyn Rae
As he was wheeled to a cell, Post says a detention officer told him, "There's a big difference between what you need and what you get in here. Don't be a baby.

He repeatedly tried to get the attention of jailers, to explain what pain he was in, and to get them to deliver him an internal catheter. So, in desperation, he started banging on the cell door. Officers say he was hitting the door's window, and told them he didn't care if he broke it. But Post says he only hit the door itself in an attempt to get a nurse's attention--and that if he wanted to break the window, he easily could have with the removable metal armrest on his wheelchair. The videotape appears to confirm Post's version of events: The tape shows Post moving close to the door, hitting it once about handle-level, and then backing away to wait for a response.
He does this repeatedly, and then gives up and goes back to where the toilet is.
He wanted to empty his full urine bag into the commode before trying to make himself urinate without the internal catheter--a difficult proposition, he says, which involves manipulating his abdomen with his hands--but he couldn't reach the toilet. While he was trying, though, a roll of toilet paper fell into it, and Post got an idea. Water began spilling across the room, and into the hall.
Arpaio's jailers didn't like that. Sergeant Steve Kenner decided Post needed to be strapped into a restraint chair. By the officers' own accounts, Post did not struggle as he was put into the chair about 4 a. He did tell them, however, that he had to be put on his gel pad. Like other paraplegics, Post has to sit on the pad to prevent pressure sores from forming.
If he sits on something hard for as little as 15 minutes, sores that may require surgery will form. The pad is a pliable item, like clay sealed in a sheet of wax paper and tucked into a cloth slipcover. Detention officers Kenner and Rocky Medina strapped Post down into the hard chair without the pad. At hours, R.
Betsy and Nursing Supervisor Kay Atkinson checked Post's restraints and stated that he would need the pad placed under him. I informed them that I needed to get the water cleaned up in that area first as the standing water was a safety hazard. Kenner doesn't mention that Post could have been wheeled away from the water while still in the restraint chair. Post pleaded with the detention officers to put the pad under him. He also complained to a nurse, telling her that the straps were constricting his shoulders so severely his hands had gone numb.
So he did. Post says the detention officers laughed at his concerns, and their smirks are visible on the videotape. The sheriff's own investigators estimate that Post was strapped down in the restraint chair without a pad for 70 minutes. Post says it was more than two hours. Finally, Kenner decided he had better put the pad under Post.
He and another detention officer pulled Post into the hall. Post says Kenner sparked a stun gun near his ear before handing it to his partner. Post says Kenner didn't loosen up the straps enough so that Post could lift himself up far enough to get the pad properly underneath him. Instead, Kenner shoved the pad about halfway under Post's buttocks. And then, before reclasping the straps, he tightened them down even further.
To accomplish this, Post says, Kenner placed his foot on the seat between Post's legs for leverage, then pulled sharply on the straps, making them bite down hard on his shoulders. Post--a man paralyzed below his waist--apparently was seen as enough of a threat to warrant six hours in the restraint chair. Only when Kenner went off duty and was replaced by another sergeant did detention officers release Post from the chair.
Kenner did not return calls from New Times. Post left jail later that morning and, after a short trial, was found guilty of possession of marijuana and marijuana paraphernalia, and criminal trespass. Post paid a heavy price for the time he spent in the restraint chair. Two hours on a hard surface gave him an ulcerated anus, which left Post bedridden for the next four months. He narrowly avoided surgery that would have required a temporary colostomy.
His time in bed forced him to drop out of college. That wound eventually healed, but Post continued to have problems with his shoulders, neck and arms. The pain of being cinched down so tight in the chair never quite left, and gradually Post began experiencing trouble using his arms. Months later, he sits twisted in his wheelchair, his right arm only a thin reminder of the strength he once had. He can't raise the arm higher than his shoulder, can no longer write or play billiards, and his left hand repeatedly goes numb.
X-rays of Post's neck show serious problems. Khayata told Post that he planned to operate, and would address the problem through the front of his neck. Khayata said he would crack open Post's sternum, remove one of Post's vertebrae, put in steel posts, and then fuse the remaining vertebrae together.
Post asked the doctor how the damage could have occurred, and Khayata told him there must have been a massive compression downward on his shoulders. Khayata asked him how that might have happened. So Post told him. And then Khayata suddenly became agitated. Khayata told Post that he had changed his mind and could not operate on him. It's obvious that litigation will be involved, Khayata told Post and Post's mother, and he wanted no part of it. He said he would refer the matter to another surgeon.
But Post and his mother say that Khayata apologized and said he wanted nothing to do with a lawsuit. The doctor did not return calls from New Times.
